We arrived at the Hotel Blake 7 1/2 hours late on the AMTRACK Empire Builder. The hotel is a $5 taxi ride from Union Station. From the minute we arrived, the staff was friendly, professional, and absolutely helpful. From reading TripAdvisor comments, we knew to get a corner room on an upper floor, and the staff obliged us.

Very nice hotel, convenient, clean, well-maintained. But it's the people that the biggest difference. Very helpful employees, in particular Greg "Showime," the valet/bell hop. Winning personality and super advice. If you need advice on where to go or how to get there, Showtime will have the answer! At the front desk, Ray was full of ideas and information. It was... More

Hotel Blake has amazing staff. The hotel is beautifully decorated and is very clean. The door man, Showtime knows where to go for everything and is extremely helpful. Actually Showtime is worth meeting and he makes the Hotel extraordinary. The restaurant Meli has great food, desserts and drinks. My weekend was perfect!!

Staff was amazing especially the bellman Showtime, they all did their best to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. However twice we were awoken at 4:30am by garbage trucks emptying trucks in the alley. Ask for a room facing the street instead of the alley.

The Blake Hotel is old: doorman who knows your name and habits, staff who inquire "what are you doing today?" and quick access to a cap. The rooms are more spacious (both in ceiling height and in square feet) although the decor is little dated, but clean. We love the location on S. Dearborn a few blocks off tony Michigan... More

I booked this hotel last minute and the front desk was very helpful and informative at telling me about things to do around Chicago and how to get around with public transportation. The room was a very good price and was huge!!! Nice bathrooms and clean beds. I would definitely stay here again.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
